Ok.. so! I thought I would see how much ink was left in cartridges that we refill/recycle/throw way when our printers start flashing next to the appropriate empty cartridge.
I was really quite shocked at this little experiment! I was surprised and happy to see that when the Espon cartridge said it was empty, it was. What I was shocked at was how much colour pigment was left in my canon toners! 18g roughly of colour pigment.
I know this is not a straight pigment, it is pigment mixed with a polymer, but I am sure I can find a few uses for it in my studio.
I am hoping that Google will show me a few other than that I will have to invent my own.
I wonder how it would work as an embossing powder!
I would be interested however to know how much pigment is in brand new toner cartridges?
Everyday I read the new posts on facebook I am so so inspired! My friends are all wonderfully creative, it is such a joy reading their posts, blogs and view their work. It really makes me want to run to my studio and start creating! This is what I was greeted with this morning! These stunning hand made books by Book Art Studios (Liz Constable) ...
My latest endeavour was picnic baskets! Well myself and two other friends that is. But really in the scheme of things I have no idea what planet I was on attempting another project right now. So we have decided to work on it behind the scenes for now. Can't wait to have the time to get them up and running sometime in the near future!
All in all heaps going on, I have not had much time in the studio of late, now I can actually see the floor and my work bench is not covered in boxes, it will not be long be for hands on creative itch over rides my digital creative side.
So my office is set up! YAY... doesn't matter that still working at the kitchen table ... that move will come soon and I be in my little office photoshoping to my hearts content.
Ok so again this year I made all my Christmas gift, Hampers...... I researched home made cleaning products... it has always been a passion of mine.... Good old White vinegar and Baking soda..... So so many uses! I think my favourite (one of actually) is the Hen food(yes I know not a cleaning product), anyway I called it Lady Harriet.. after my friend chicken, just as well they loved it! This was another of my favourites Bath Salts..... oh so simple and economical to boot.
I did get a little creative before I moved and had more of a play with the transfer technique... I LOVE these, I have even got the large menu canvas hanging in my dining room!
